My toiletry bag is usually the last thing I finish packing while getting ready the day of my trip. I use most of the products I want to take with me so I need to have them handy when getting ready. This means that they can’t be packed ahead of time, but I do think about them first and foremost.

Travel Beauty Essentials Liquids

Travel Beauty Essentials – Liquids

While getting ready for my trip I pack my liquids in one bag and everything else in another. If you’re traveling on a plane this is a must, if not it helps ensure your liquids don’t accidentally leak everywhere. Try to pack as many solid or powder products as possible to limit what needs to be kept in your clear quart-sized bag.

  • Face Wash
  • Toner
    • I like to travel with spray toners like this one, they’re quicker and easier to use.
  • Moisturizer
  • Eye Cream
  • Mascara
  • Setting Spray
    • A refreshing setting spray like this one can be used throughout the day.
  • Perfume/Body Spray Sample
    • Put those perfume samples to good use!

Travel Beauty Essentials Other Travel Beauty Essentials

Travel Beauty Essentials – Other

  • Makeup Remover/Makeup Remover Wipes
    • I love packing both of these, but one or the other would suffice. I especially like this solid makeup remover, it melts your makeup off gently.
  • Facial SPF Stick
    • Get one from a skincare brand you love to ensure it doesn’t clog your pores.
  • Deodorant
  • Stick Foundation
  • Stick Concealer
    • Notice the pattern here, it’s easier to travel with sticks!
  • Brow Powder/Brow Pencil
  • Eyeshadow Palette/Eyeshadow Sticks
    • Try to pick a small, travel-friendly palette. This one is my fav. Or, go for a few of your favorite eyeshadow sticks instead, like these.
  • Pencil Eyeliner
  • Blush
    • This and the next two products should all be powders or better yet,  you guessed it, sticks. The easier your makeup is to apply, the better.
  • Bronzer
  • Highlighter
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrush
  • Hair Brush
  • Hair Ties
  • Bobby Pins
  • Makeup Sponge(s)
  • Makeup Brushes
    • If you pack makeup products that are in stick form, you won’t need to pack as many brushes. You may be able to get away with none at all.
  • Razor
